When the iPod nano 6th gen was announced last year, a lot of people think that it would look cool as a wrist watch considering that it comes with two analog clock displays (black or white face). One of the forerunners out there who came up with a wrist strap design for the 6th gen nano was Lunatik and they came up with two designs, the TikTok and Lunatik.
TikTok has a simple snap-in design so you can quickly and securely snap the iPod nano in and out of the wrist dock. Despite it’s simplicity, it doesn’t come off easily in case you accidentally bang your arm somewhere.
The LunaTik on the other hand offers a more secure way to attach your iPod. The housing for the iPod is made from aerospace grade aluminum then machined via CNC and hand-crafted into its final form. This is made for those wanting to use their iPod nano primarily as a wrist watch because it takes a bit of an effort to attach the iPod onto the housing (small tools are included in the packaging).
Both the TikTok and LunaTik has straps that are made from high grade silicone rubber and the hardware is solid stainless steel. The straps are very easy to adjust although it won’t come off easily by accident. Only drawback here is that it comes with a manly black color so those who wants a more chic strap that would match their apple green nano will have to look elsewhere.
When combined with your iPod nano, either of these two will give you a seamless wristwatch design that people have to look closely to notice that it’s really a nano on your wrist. It will only start looking weird if you attach your earphones or Nike+ kit on it.
The TikTok is priced at $34.95 while the more premium LunaTik goes for a whopping $69.95. Not cheap but these are conceived by Scott Wilson, global creative director for Nike Watches. If you want one, you have to buy it online or check the Philmug forum for somebody who has spares of these that they are willing to sell.
Update: It seems that there are reports that iStudio in BHS are selling the TikTok for 1.8k apiece.
